Well, they are wrong...Feel free to ignore what I have written but I stand by my previous post. I pretty much own everything Leconte has done so I won't come in here and play with you
By the way the English subs on the Miramax disc are somewhat problematic as they don't exactly depict what is spoken by the main protagonists. If not fluent in French however a lot of the literary references will simply be a non-issue.
Regardless, as I mentioned above Ridicule is presented in the original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, enhanced for widescreen TVs, progressive, etc.
Also, since you are planning to show this to your class keep in mind that the penis-shot is all in tact on the R1 and there are no cuts with this specific scene.
